taken to the streets? to discuss this i'm joined by ian beg who is a research fellow at the london school of economics. so professor beg, we hear talk this being the worst recession since the second world war. is it? >> it's been a long recession and it's very slow to see any kind of recovery. but it's also worth remembering statistically although being one of the worst in the last century, we actually today are as well off as in 2006. we've only gone back by a few steps. >> is it simply a case that it feels like the worst recession that anyone can remember? >> it's the fact that it hasn't gone to a recovery phase. tore used to in a recession have a deep downturn followed bay quite rapid recovery. it takes longer to readdress individual positions in their debt. and that means that it lasts much longer than everybody expects because everybody tries to save. >> so if things aren't very bleak across europe, why is it that in some countries as in greece and in spain we've seen the protest? >> i put greece out on its own because the magnitude of the downturn in greece has been phenomena
. you see more people begging-- and a different class of peoplei begging, people who had recently been sort of somewhere at the bottom of the middle class. >> brown: stallings is trained as a classicist, reading ancient greek and latin.phlu she did an acclaimed translation of the roman philosopher, lucretius' "the nature of things." and her own poetry has garnered several prizes. in 2011 she was the recipient of a macarthur fellowship, the so- called "genius award." her latest collection, titled "olives," explores, among other things, ancient and modern lives in her adopted home.th >> there's weirdly a lot of energy in athens, and, whether it's good or bad, there's a feeling. >> brown: what kind of energy? >> maybe there's a "there's nothing left to lose" as a kind of freedom as well. people are going out to plays. they're still going out and doing things, but, you know with less money. but there's an urgency. poetry meetings are very well attended.li literary events are packed. >> brown: why do you think that is? >> well, it's inexpensive, inexpensive entertainment. ( laughs ) but i t
the security demands were being begged for? >> well, i think it is going to be three areas that she is going to face questions on the benghazi issue. the first is going to be, was she aware of the deteriorating environment and did she know there were cans for more security that were then denied? so did she know what the accountability review board releases last week in their findings blamed on midlevel officials, did it get up to her? that is the first question. the second thing people will want to know why didn't she testify? why didn't she go on the sunday shows like susan rice. >> she was tired. >> i mean, i think they're going to ask her about that. did she agree with the talking points? did she agree with what the is ambassador to the united nations said? i think finally, i think they're definitely going to ask hillary clinton about not just what the environment was like in the run-up to benghazi, but i think they're going to ask her, was she trying to normalize the u.s. posture in libya overall so there wasn't as much military? and why did she want to do that knowing that the situation
. then two weeks later, three weeks later, kennedy himself is assassinated. and as you said before, this begs the question that historians argue about. we will probably keep arguing about that the next 50 years. what kennedy has mounted to -- what he have pulled out of the american troops in vietnam and the advisers if we didn't yet have the troops and the great numbers of the combat troops there? and you are doing think that indications are that he would have come in and you cite various sources about that. curious just to challenge that a little bit. there is a wonderful book by a story called choosing war which you probably know. in which he says that the viet cong attacks were doubling in november from the month before and south vietnam and that there were meetings of kennedy's tauter advisers which i think finished up the day before kennedy was assassinated. this would be a good film. and incidentally the viet cong we are going to win if they didn't do something very quickly. so, not to challenge the members of people who were devolve in the sand kennedy would have pulled out, but wouldn
of the land. lan but also begs the question of, do you want to spend your time trying to do the things it did not release him to pay off much in the last election? >> jason dick, emily goodin, thank you for being on "newsmakers." [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> we will show our conversation with luke messer today again at 6:00 p.m. eastern. coast chambers of congress are in -- both chambers of congress are in. the senate is in at 1:00 eastern time. votes are scheduled at 2:00 p.m. eastern. majority leader harry reid and minority leader mcconnell had set a deadline of 3:00 p.m. when they're planning to convene a caucus meetings and update members of the parties on a possible plan for taxes and spending on the new year. will bring you live coverage of the senate on c-span2 started at 1:00 eastern. in the house, the return of 2:00 p.m. you'll be considering a number of pieces of legislation. what the live coverage of the house here and c-span. next, retiring senator kent conrad reflects on his career in congress
today-- insist that the president hasn't put forward spending cuts, one, it begs the question, what spending cuts have the republicans put forward? >> reporter: the president was asked if he was optimistic about reaching a deal. >> still a work in progress. >> reporter: but senate majority leader harry reid said republicans in congress should yield to public opinion about tax increases. >> speaker boehner knows or should know that the middle- class tax help that we have to pass would sail through the house of representatives. democrats would overwhelmingly vote for it. i would doubt there could be any democrat that would vote against it. and as we know from the chorus of republicans that are added to every day, more republicans join every day. >> reporter: in fact, new polls show americans do want compromise, and it's the democrats who hold the edge. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll released yesterday shows a majority. 65% say president obama has a mandate on both increasing taxes on the wealthy and reducing federal spending; a similar two-thirds are willing to accept tax increases
, that the business community was begging for, it was certainty from washington. we don't care whether good policy, bad policy, give us a policy we know we will live under for the next few years so we can start to make decisions. i don't see how a businessman would have any idea what is going to happen as a result of what is happening here or go what is going to happen to the debt ceiling. >> i think president obama outmaneuvered congressional republicans which maybe isn't that hard sometimes. he can't outmaneuver reality. this deal does nothing toimulad irresponsibly cuts defense. that is reality. we will pay a terrible price as a country. he is the only president we have. this is a terrible failure of leadership. he is the president and the truth is the speaker can't do it. the minority or majority leader of the senate can't do it. he has to be serious about dealing with reality and reality is the real cliff which is a debt cliff and monetary cliff and up' worried a foreign policy cliff and not merely the little fiscal cliff we have to deal with january 1. >> chris: panel, we have to take a brea
discussing the war on coal. that's a lot. why the false identity is the question that continues to be begged and hopefully we can answer. >> there wasn't a regulation that she didn't like and she didn't want to impose. >> can the coal companies breathe easier now? can we see new power generation happening in this country or are we going get someone just like her because they'll want to work for president obama? >> right. here's the thing. she was hailed by rolling stone as the most progressive ep achieve ever, but at the end of the day she was effectuating a radical agenda set by the president. this war on coal was set forth when he gave his shellacking press conference and said there were other ways to skin that cat. so you're going to get somebody who wants the job to effectuate his agenda and it won't be anybody much better, i suppose, but the good news may lie on what we find. there are 12,000 e-mails that by their very nature assuming the false identity that she didn't want the public to see and these on coal.00 e-mails addressing maybe there was news in there that was candid and becaus
, at the end of the day it is gift. >> chris: one thing the economy -- the business community was begging for, it was certainty from washington. we don't care what you do. good policy, bad policy, give us a policy we know we'll live under for the next few years and we can start to make decisions. i don't see how a business man would have any idea what will happen as a result of what is happening here or looking ahead two months to the debt ceiling. >> i agree. i think obama -- president obama out maneuvered the congressional republicans. maybe it isn't hard, sometimes, but can't out maneuver reality and the reality is we are running a $1 trillion deficit and the deal does nothing about that and does nothing to stimulate economic growth and irresponsibly cuts defense and we'll pay a terrible price for that, as a country, and he is the only president we have and this is where -- i'm not making it a partisan point, a terrible failure of leadership, he's the president and the truth is, the speaker can't do it and minority and majority leader can't do it. he has to be serious about dealing with re
people, begging for money. i think you spend maybe one- third to one-half of your time asking people for money. that should not be the main objective of our job. we should be doing the job for the people instead of worrying about raising money. i do not know what the answer is. maybe limiting the terms of the campaign, i do not know what it is. you cannot limit the funding because of the first amendment. it is gone way beyond the pale. i think -- we have state representatives that are spending three-quarters of a million dollars for house in indiana. we have gone beyond where we should. >> in addition to your long service, you have been on foreign affairs. >> 30 years. >> a somewhat early association was with jesse helms. how did that alliance come together? let's start with that part of the story. >> i was always a strong anti- communists. i never liked fidel castro. i became chairman of the subcommittee on western hemisphere. i worked with some of my cuban- ileanaan friends, ke ros-lehtinen and bob menendez and we worked hard to put sanctions on castro to try to bring that regime d
christian kin claim it is against the bible we beg to differ. they wrote this in the "l.a. times," we posted this up on steph stephanie miller facebook. there are only three passages that deal with homosexuality in the new testament. the passages don't deal with homosexuality but with temple prostitution and other abuses. i'm filling in for the ecclesiastical movement until friday. because of dated translations, many version of the bible imply otherwise. as for the old testament they cite leviticus. most acknowledge if we took all of the old testaments literally most of us would make it to age 40. >> stephanie: kill everyone that commits adultery, kill rebellious sons who disaway their parents. kill anyone who works on the sabbath. jesus never addressed the subject of homosexuality other than what can be inferred from his exam of loving and accepting everyone. they were referring to marriage between a man and a woman. where jesus protested the practice of men getting rid of inconvenient wives by handing them
lauz but born with an . >> you know, i beg to differ, mr. president. to me, i understand the use of its is a weapon but to me the real problem isn't the debt ceiling. it's the debt. the debt is the problem. you know, to have an unlimited amount of money to call upon is too much power power for one person. it's always in our country been about checks and balances but i think this administration just wants more checks and no balancing of the checkbook. that isn't the kind of check and balance that i think the people that wrote the constitution had in mind. now, let's look at it a different way, when we think of, you know, some good entertainment, there's, you know, bob hope, the road to morocco, the road to singapore. i don't think that we want to have a movie someday called the road to the weimar republic because bob hope was in the old movies. there's no hope in that new movie and i think this issue really has to be discussed. now i understand there's issues about compromise and everybody has heard that the president and the democrats won the white house. i understand that but the debt
attack. that project, the great project is begging for money. it barely manages to get its basic budget of the year. and this is the sort of thing that i think ought to be supported by the u.s. government in a way that is not. and the final thing we need to do in terms of non-state actors is a al qaeda came the closest to developing wmd when they were in control of the territory in afghanistan which the time and space was to develop wmd to the you have to keep the groups like that. >> talking about the wmd attacks by the non-state actors, chemical, biological, i know in the formal weapons inspector you served on the international task force on the prevention of nuclear terrorism and i wonder if you could talk about the nuclear terrorism. how likely is it? >> again i am a scientist, so i think it is a very small probability to reject the idea 50%. i think it is much less than one but i also say the chance that fukushima happening was less than 1%. it is a low probability and a horrific consequences, and i think as the proliferation happens and the nuclear capabilities, several nuclear ca
. members spend an inordinate amount of time at their headquarters calling people, begging for money. i think you spend maybe one- third to one-half of your time asking people for money. that should not be the main objective of our job. we should be doing the job for the people instead of worrying about raising money. i do not know what the answer is. maybe limiting the terms of the campaign, i do not know what it is. you cannot limit the funding because of the first amendment. it is gone way beyond the pale. i think -- we have state representatives that are spending three-quarters of a million dollars for house seat in indiana. we have gone beyond where we should. >> in addition to your long service, you have been on foreign affairs. >> 30 years. >> a somewhat early association was with jesse helms. how did that alliance come together? let's start with that part of the story. >> i was always a strong anti- communists. i never liked fidel castro. i became chairman of the subcommittee on western hemisphere. i worked with some of my cuban- american friends, ileana ros- lehtinen and bob m
linda was begging homebuilders to hire sfrunlts the job corps program. >> there was nothing going on. >> now they're in high demand and they know it. >> there's a resurgence in construction, so i know this is the place to be. >> housing starts climb to an annualized rate after falling to a low of just around half a million in 2009 when the industry and the trade were decimated. >> over 2 million workers left the construction industry, and most of those are not coming back, so we have a great need to have skilled workers. >> with instructors from the nonprofit home building institute these students learn plumbing, weatherization, painting, all the construction skills you would see on a residential or commercial site. so the big question is why did all those workers who left not come back? well, remember, this housing recession has been going on for almost five years now and a lot of them have retrained into other careers. another point to make that is very important, if we go over the fiscal cliff, not only will the housing recovery come to a grinding halt, but programs like this one,
in the first paycheck -- i beg your pardon, tax increases in the first paycheck presumably for people earning $250,000 or more. and that's just the start, isn't it, andy? >> i think actually a good deal for the market is a grand bargain of sorts. i don't think it will be $4 trillion. but $2.5 trillion would be the best outcome for markets. that is less fiscal tightening, which would help the markets in the near term. but i also think that if you think about entitlement savings down the road and having people stay in the work force longer, because it won't be as jen rours a benefits package, i think that's pro-gdp. people will be working longer. that's not sucking something out of the economy. >> chuck, forgive me, but i'm quite concerned that maybe the market has lost sight of what the underlying state of the economy may be here. goldman sachs, as a result of its financial services conference, they say clarity around the fiscal cliff may help with the margin. but there's no pentup demand that would aid growth next year. chuck, is goldman sachs right? are those attendees of that banking confer
on the street." here's what's happening so far. >> i'm begging members of congress and the executive to please get something done here that reassures consumers, reassures business operators, most important of all to create the jobs in america. >> there are going to be some revenues involved but there need to be multiples of that in entitlement cuts. so i've taken enough flack on both the right and the left of this equation to know that i'm in the right place. >> every company on retail is saying, look at us. behind the scenes, guys, tell me. how is it going? they all say, what, are you kidding me? we got two weeks here. we don't know. i mean, they got a gift cliff. right? the buy cliff. >> right. >> there are other cliffs out there. >> we're back at the opening bell here. >> the real question now is does it affect the consumers? we have not seen consumers go backwards although you saw some confidence numbers come down. i think if we get this solved soon the consumers who have been pretty steady will continue to be there. >> if there is a sense of movement or excessive sense of fear, you can se
